Unmasked!

One of the most frequently asked questions that comes my way all the time has to do with the reason why there's no picture of myself in my profile. At the beginning, I really didn't see the use of a photo. After all, I was just another nobody with a blog.

And yet, as the Hotlist grew in popularity, my main objective remained to give authors and their work the entire spotlight. Truth to tell, I'd remove the Pat in Pat's Fantasy Hotlist if I could. But at this stage, I don't believe it's possible.

I had a lot of fun reading some loony conspiracy theories about whether or not I was someone in publishing, etc. And the more people wanted to know who Pat really was, the more I wanted to remain anonymous. A bit like the band Kiss in the 70s. . .

But now that some people have met me in person, the "mystique" is gradually evaporating.;-) Last week, after being bugged by pesky individuals who annoyed the hell out of me until I could stand it no longer, I decided to bite the bullet and activated my Facebook account.

So if you want to see who the infamous, Erikson-loving, Goodkind-trashing, epic fantasy aficionado that Pat truly is, you can view an album of my recent trips to New York City and Washington D. C. right here.

Be forewarned, though. Just like Kiss were never the same after being unmasked, so will you never be the same again after seeing those pics!;-) And yes, contrary to what some believe, I am human after all!

Don't expect me to waste too much time on Facebook, but feel free to add me as your friend. . .

It's always hard being surrounded by beautiful women, Pat. *grins*

And I see we have a lot in common... haha

Hope you guys had a great time running all over the East Coast.

You mean you're actually a human?? And here I thought you were a red and black alien with a double-bladed light sabre . . .

I spend years wondering what Pat looks like and when I finally get my chance... my work computer blocks it! Conspiracy...?

Nice taste in women there. Ah, las mujeres porteñas son tan caliente, no? :D

Scott Marlowe said...

Human AND you look normal enough!

I don't care what you look like as long as you are an Erikson-loving, Goodkind-trashing kinda guy.

Patrick said...

Yeah, just a normal dude. . .

Bummer, eh!?!;-)

I'm not changing my avatar, though. I'm kind of fond of my Darth Maul meets South Park freak!

Larry: No hable Espagnol. I can order a beer and ask where the restrooms are. And Hola chica! So I have no idea what you just said, though I have a feeling it has something to do with the ladies on the pics!;-)

Anonymous: I'll happily remain a Goodkind-trashing an Erikson-loving kind of guy!

I said "The porteña (ladies of Buenos Aires) women are so hot, no?" :P Je parle le français comme une vache espagnol? :P
